Editor's note: has there ever been a city that embraces the night more than New Orleans? :)
From approximately 220 miles above Earth, one of the Expedition 26 crew members aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station recorded this night time image of the greater New Orleans area. A 200-mm focal length was utilized to capture the image.
